 Hello, I am back with a couple of cards to share with you using the Blue Knight Rubber Stamps "Orca" Stamps.

For the first card, I started with stamping my image on white card stock using Marvy Uchida Black Ink.   I colored the image using Copics markers.  I removed  sky from this image and mounted it on a water color wash background that I created some time ago.  I like the way the sky looks behind the mountains.

The second card was made by stamping the image on a pre-boxed card that I bought at Hobby Lobby.  I cut the card in two and only used the card front.  The only coloring I did to this was to add some Copic marker to the water. The colors on the card base was perfect for the mountain colors.  I really liked the way it turned out.  

Thank you, so much, for coming by today.  Have a wonderful week.
